About Ampersand

Ampersand is Africa’s first electric transport energy company headquartered in Kigali, Rwanda, with a presence in Nairobi, Kenya. We‘re achieving the world’s first true mass-market shift to electric vehicles, a vital tipping point in the fight against climate change.

East Africa’s 5 million moto taxi drivers are some of the hardest working people on the planet. Many days these drivers work more than 13 hours yet end up with little money in their pockets. Our energy and vehicle service platforms offer savings that can double a driver’s income.

Our electric motorcycles offer superior performance than the petroleum bikes and have zero tailpipe emissions. They produce 75% less lifecycle greenhouse emissions than petrol motorbikes using grid power, and 98% less on renewables.

In order to accomplish all this, we are building a world class team of mission-driven innovators, engineers, and managers that are ready to serve humbly and address the hard problems.
